    What is the learning curve like on fishing with the livescope? Is it pretty user friendly?

    Everyone learns at a different speed. Fishers, Starfish or Josh Jones could significantly shorten the learning curve via settings to use to maximize results. Josh is on Garmin Pro Staff I think.

    I like my Garmins. I switched from Lowrance when the Echomaps first came out with a 73DV up front and 93SV on the console. Then replaced the 73 with a 93 up front. Now I have a 93 Chirp at the console with a 93 plus up front so I'm set for the livescope. It's gonna be hard to pull the trigger on that price because every unit I have had cost me about 60% of MSRP with sales and rebates.

    Might have to tho'.

    Garmin knocked it out of the park on their automatic settings with live scope. I messed around with contrast and other things and could not improve upon what they have done in their Auto settings. Except I manually adjust distance and depth to maximize screen use. The only other thing I think somebody may want to adjust would be color palette. As far as ease of use, you are simply using your foot to point the trolling motor at what you want to see, it is really straightforward and you won't even think about it after using it for a few hours.

    Will appreciate any comments. Not sure I can make it much longer without livescope. Issue is I'm running relatively new HDS in front and back that are connected with each other. Would it make any sense to add Garmin screen up front for livescope only?

    Absolutely! You can use the HDS unit for map, sonar, downscan and side scan giving you an idea of which way to point your trolling motor that has the livevue mounted.
    Catch da Crappie! I likes it a lot.
